I’ve just installed Cubase 11 Pro and when I try to playback a VST instrument I get no playback sound unless monitoring is switched on. Is this the correct functionality?
Additionally, I am unable to access the Groove Agent SE additional content in the Samples and Loops section of the right hand panel.
Many thanks in advance.
P.S. I’m running Windows 10 with 8GB of RAM and an Intel i7 Quad Core Processor. The system has been formatted recently and the only programs installed are Cubase and the Various Plugins and Instruments I own.
Your first suggestion is correct. I already have MIDI programmed but I’m unable to hear it being played back unless monitor is enabled.
In regards to your second point, I can see the content in the Groove Agent VST. I only assumed it should appear in the Loops and Samples section as I’m running through a couple of Cubase11 tutorials and the Groove Agent content they use appears in the right hand media bay under the loops and samples section. For reference it is the GA SE Library. I tried to attach an image but it wouldnt allow me to.
I’ve used the file manager to put the content packs where I require them, strangely enough, three of the packs are visible whereas others are not. I understand what you are saying that not all of them act as content packs it just seems strange to me that someone else has a different functionality with the exact same product. I’m sure it’s something I’m doing wrong I just can’t for the life of me figure out what it is
I’m struggling to get my head around exactly what is wrong - the pics look ok. I think I could probably duplicate the issue by messing with midi channels and redirecting the midi in some odd routing way.
Rather than try to diagnose - why not delete (backup!) your preferences and see what happens. If you have older versions of cubase installed then it will try to copy those - so we need to temporarily rename them too.
That will probably fix the missing GA content too - as there is a file in there called media.db or something that get corruputed.
yes - that’s the media.db (or something with a similar name) file that’s in the folder - took me AGES to track that down - so remember if you get missing content just rename it and it rescans when cubase boots. I’ve had it corrupt a few times.
Anyway back to the main issue - I’m running out of ideas
Just checking - this is a totally fresh install - NO other versions of cubase - and you deleted (renamed) the entire cubase11x64 directory ?
And that project was totally new …not based on any template ?
